FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK

 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we may comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)


The comfort's that we receive from God in our times of troubles are designed to prevent us from losing our joy. If we don't make the conscious effort to keep our joy, as a result of the comforts that God gives us, not only will the enemy steal that joy, that belongs to us, but he will also rob our family,love ones and the body of Christ of the joy that comfort should have bought them. When we have joy we can influence and comfort the people around us. Spiritual comforts are not given us for our use alone, like all the gifts of God they are given that they may be used as instrument to help others in the body of Christ. Be comforted by our Father and hold on to your joy, that you may continue to be a effective member of the body of Christ. Always remember, for those that love the Lord troubles want last forever. God Bless.
